Any LEGITIMATE work from home jobs out there?

I am a teacher with a dd who is 21 months old and a baby on the way in just three short months. I will be taking three months off of work, but am feeling that pull to be able to stay home with my kids until they are school aged, or at least supplement my income in the meantime. It is so difficult to sift through all of the scams out there to find legitimate opportunities. I always search any potential opportunities I find on the BBB website as well and typically the results are not good. Do any of you have any experience with legitimate opportunities that you can share?

  • I'd love to give you some info and answer any questions you may have. Hope i help!

    I'm happily engaged and we are about to buy our first home. We live in a small town where it is really hard to find a decent job, so I've been searching for a way to work at home. I recently found a home-based opportunity with no large investments and no risk! I work in the comfort of my own home with an international, 24 year old, Inc 500 company. All I do is set up customer accounts and do some online marketing. I work around my own schedule, with a group of amazing team members. I never even have to leave my own home to be successful!

    If this is something you'd be interested in, please visit my website.

    I think that once you hear more information about the company, you'll love it just as much as I do!

    I hope to hear from you soon :)

  • Hi.
    I sell CHOCOLATE. Actually I'm a Dove Chocolate Discoveries (TM) Chocolatier. It is a direct selling business. You can check out my website and let me know if you have any questions.
    To oversimplify it, you purchase a kit (special of $99 through Oct.), do chocolate tasting parties, and earn a percentage of the sales. You can do one party every couple months or 3-4 parties a week. It depends on how much you want to make.

  • I like what Julia is offering especially for a teacher. But I know nothing about that company.


    I think as a teacher you could apprciate what our company has to offer:


    We are Accrddited by the BBB and we have an A+(:0)!

    We are publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange

    We have been #3 in growth on the NYSE for 15 years!

    We are even endorsed by the Chamber of Commerence & many State Attorney Generals.

    36 years in business and counting...
